TWO RIVERS GOLF CLUB
We had a busy month in April,
starting with the Monterey Bay trip to Pasadera Country Club and Rancho
Canada West, followed by tournaments closer to home at River Oaks and
Pasadera Country Club
TRGC had pretty decent weather for
both days in Monterey. The turnout could have been a little better, but
the members who did attend had a great two days of golf and social
activities. Monterey/Carmel has the best collection of fine restaurants
and fantastic scenery anywhere! Pasadera Country Club, soon to be
renamed Nicklaus Private-Monterey, is a beautiful course but tough to
play. There are lots of ways to go wrong here! TRGC played a skins
format at Pasadera—the more skins you win, the more money you collect.
Ken Peterson tallied two skins, followed by Bill Eshbach, Dave Ward and
guest Matt Winans with one each.
Rancho Canada West
The club played the standard stroke
format with two flights for this event. The weather was still good and
the course was in nice shape. We didn’t do fewest putts or closest to
the pin because of the limited turnout.

Back in the Sacramento area, we
played at River Oaks on April 12. Once again, we had decent weather and
good course conditions, plus a good turnout of players. Some of our
golfers turned in fantastic scores: Jim Svobodny had a net 59, Ken
Peterson had a net 60 and Joe Gough shot a net 63.

The weather was cloudy and cool for
the Mather tournament, but that seemed fine compared to all the rain
that fell on the previous day. Mather was in good condition, but there
wasn’t a lot of roll on the fairways. The rough was very thick and
wet! Almost every golfer found that trying to advance the ball from a
deep lie off the fairway was a difficult proposition. The format for
this tournament was two-person best ball.

The next TRGC event will be
Castle Oaks on May 17th. This is a great golf
course, and popular, so sign up right away to get a slot. In June we
play Rocklin Golf Club on June 7th and Micke
Grove on June 28th.
Renee will send out the entry forms
for these tournaments as the dates get closer—enter early!
The recent rainstorm in the
Sacramento area courses was welcomed by the local golf courses. Let’s
hope for more of the same.
